Sydney’s Christmas lights illuminate the city all summer long

Sydney’s Christmas lights will illuminate the city alongside an array of roaming entertainment and festive fun to celebrate the season

Sydneysiders have spent nearly a quarter of 2021 in lockdown, and just as we’ve come out of such a grueling period under stay-at-home orders, little Miss La Niña has barged in to wash the summer away. So it’s fair to say that what the city needs right now is a little festive cheer. Well, that’s exactly what Sydney will get from November 25, when the annual Christmas lights once again illuminate city streets and squares. There will also be a program of carols, roaming entertainers and other festive fun for Sydneysiders to enjoy.

More than 85,000 orbs will sparkle, rain or shine, in December and into 2022, including those strung around 11 Christmas trees scattered across the city. The dazzling of them all will be found at Martin Place, the traditional epicenter of Sydney’s Chrissie celebrations, which will mark the 50th anniversary of the tallest decorated tree in NSW in 2021. This year’s tree will also feature a 15-minute light and music display that will play on repeat throughout the holiday season.

One thing new this year is a dynamic ‘light display’ on the QVB, which will feature a kaleidoscope of colors that will illuminate the grand entrance to Sydney’s landmark luxury shopping centre. There will also be lighting installations on the Druitt Street side of the building, consisting of more than 7,000 lamps in an area of ​​260 square meters. And Christmas shoppers should also keep an eye out for two giant glowing stars that will shine on Pitt Street Mall.

The choir program will run from December 1 to 21 at the Martin Place Christmas tree and from December 17 to 24 in George Street from 6 to 8 p.m. Entertainment is staged at lunchtime and in the evenings from Wednesday to Sunday in the city center and from Thursday to Sunday in the suburbs of the city. The celebrations last from December to January.
